Northern IL - So Wisconsin Oct 14 '05 AUTUMNFEST

Hi, all!

We want to have a get-together before winter comes, and hope that some of you do, too.

We know of a WONDERFUL Forest Preserve approximately 20 miles west of Rockford, and Rockford is 90 miles west of Chicago.

We want to have the rally on the weekend of October 14, (Friday) 15th, (Saturday) and 16th. (Sunday)

Not everyone will be able to come in on Friday; that's fine. Come for what time you can.

Click here to add your name to the list or see who's coming!

Please toss your thoughts this way!

Nope

No, NOT Rock Cut.. it's in Pecatonica, much nicer, much more secluded and just all-around SUPER.

It's VERY wooded, with a hoot-owl serenade. (every time I've been there, anyway)

I don't really care much for Rock Cut; we've been there, of course, but it's NO CONTEST between the two.

Cool Thoughts?

I think this could be a good way to start to end the season. Just checked with the better half and she says she's off that weekend.
We are definitly interested.
Tom.

Attention!!!

Let's bring this back to the top of the forum page.. I am making arrangements with the campground host to reserve some slots..

They don't take reservations but can make an allowance for a bunch of aluminum :-) (especially since we go there on a pretty regular basis)

SURE! With the way the world seems to be going to HAIL in a Handbasket, I say BRING ON THE DESSERTS!!!

People, check your calendars and start a change jar for gas money, and think about this weekend.

I'm HOPING that we'll have some beautiful October leaves..

We'll be there if we can -- have to be in Schaumburg for a black tie by 6 pm Saturday but should be able to do Friday night. We'd love to meet others from the area.

You'd come for just one night? (Friday)

That woudln't be too bad, but will take some effort!

I hope you can work it out.

Assuming business allows us to get away we'll do it, no problems, for one night. We'll get ready to go Thursday night and pull out -- it takes us no time to get out there. Tom

GREAT!

We own a small business, and we're just going to take off early on Friday and FORGET Saturday.

I worked all day today, Labor Day, and am LOOKING FORWARD to heading out for camping this upcoming weekend. I surely didn't want to go THIS past weekend!

Great place to stay

Of course it's the Forest Preserve; there are not a lot of places to stay in a small place like Pecatonica.

The Preserve is beautiful, and not crowded.

Again..

I'm bringing this thread back to the top to see if anyone is closer to deciding that they want to spend the gas to come to this small (but nice) Rally.
